Why did they make it so that villagers give you the majority of your PWPs?

I mean, come on, that's so ****ing stupid. Not only can you not just constantly talk to them in order for them to suggest them (they have to come up to you), but they'll most likely constantly give you items you don't want, ask for a new catchphrase/greeting, etc. instead of suggesting a PWP to you (which might end up being something useless like the Caution Sign anyway).

I wouldn't take issue with this if only a small amount of the PWPs were gotten through random conversations with your villagers, but to have SO MANY of them gained through this method is absolutely ridiculous. What's wrong with us earning most of the PWPs by doing something (like how you can change your train station after you've had people visit your town 100 times)?

This is one of the game's biggest faults, IMO. I really want the Modern PWPs.

I like to play games at my own pace, thank you very much.

And frankly, regardless of what pace a game is going at, having a good chunk of unlockables obtained through something completely random like this is ridiculous.

This. It's part of the game.

Because it's meant to emulate the villagers being able to shape what happens to their town by suggesting things to the mayor.

You know, making them actually useful to the process.

I'm all for taking it slow, but I agree. It's ridiculous.

There should be alternate ways to get public works projects, such as visiting another town and getting inspiration, or getting them suggested automatically when you complete certain tasks (ie catch 50 fish, get the light house).

I got ONE PWP suggestion in two weeks of playing. That's unacceptable, considering how many there are.
#10Fight_The_PowerPosted 7/5/2013 7:21:46 PM
I got two PWP suggestions from villagers... and I've had the game since launch.

But of course people will always attempt to defend the stupidest nonsense.
